This 1968 Airstream Tradewind is another silver beauty for sale over at VintageTrailerCrazy, a dangerous dangerous site that makes me want to buy vintage trailers.

5. The opera mobile suite

This one is not technically a camper and it’s not vintage, but it’s so pretty that I’ll let it pass. It looks like the Sydney opera house on wheels. Find more info here.

Cupcakes, weddings and a vintage trailer – could it get any better? Enjoy cupcakes have found the perfect concept serving cupcakes at events out of their vintage Shasta trailer.
